Columbia Theatre Artistic Director Jim Winter is looking forward to welcoming Jones home.

My staff and I are currently working very hard to make Nov. 1 a special night celebrating some of Southeastern’s most successful alums.”
In celebration of Jones’ return to Southeastern, Columbia Theatre will be serving Gnarly Barley, a beer brewed by Southeastern alumni Zac and Cari Caramonta, offering a special discount for alumni that night, and hosting additional surprise guest alumni for the curtain speech and lobby greeters.
